Man remanded on attempted murder and firearm possession charges


Tribune Staff Reporter


A MAN was sent to prison accused of a botched murder attempt last week.

Acting Chief Magistrate Roberto Reckley charged Rashad Dorvilus, 26, with attempted murder and two counts of possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life.

Dorvilus allegedly pulled up to Brenton Albury in a dark-coloured SUV while driving on Soldier Road at 2.15am on August 8. The defendant reportedly pulled out a 9mm firearm and fired at the 20-year-old, resulting in him receiving injuries to his lower body. During this same incident, Dorvilus also allegedly endangered the life of Shaquille Farrington before fleeing the scene.

Dorvilus’s case will be transferred to the Supreme Court by a voluntary bill of indictment to be served on November 2.
